Adevinta (ASA) publishes its 2021 Annual Report
Oslo, 28 April 2022 - Adevinta ASA has released its 2021 Annual Report. It is available on www.adevinta.com/investors, and a printed copy may also be obtained free of charge upon written request to the following email address: email@example.com.
Reflecting on 2021, Rolv Erik Ryssdal, CEO, said: “As we look back on 2021, in many ways Adevinta feels like a new company. During the year under review, we became bigger, better and more successful. We have become the European champion of the online classifieds industry, operating a tried-and-tested business model in markets we know well. The key change over the past year is the scale of our opportunities, brands and assets, and the opportunities this scale presents. We have strong financial capacity as a combined business with revenue of more than €1.5 billion delivering robust profitability of 34% and generating strong cash flows. Adevinta is moving forward with an array of strengths; we are the largest pure-play classifieds player in the western world, serving more than one billion people and with leading positions in 15 markets. Among our 8,100 employees, we have close to 3,000 working in product and technology teams that drive our platforms and innovation each day.
“We closed 2021 with our markets and business well positioned. In France, leboncoin is a household name. In Germany, mobile.de is the biggest vehicle marketplace in Europe while eBay Kleinanzeigen is Germany’s top classifieds portal. In the Netherlands, Marktplaats is the country’s largest online marketplace. In Spain, we hold number one positions in motors and jobs and the number two slot in real estate. In Italy, we hold four strong and respected brands covering online classifieds, recruitment and motors. Outside Europe, we are considered to be the online classifieds champion in Brazil. We know that driving further growth requires strong execution and focus on the biggest opportunities. We therefore conducted a strategic review following the completion of the eCG acquisition to determine our key priorities, and to assess how we should invest for the highest return.
“We know that driving further growth requires strong execution and focus on the biggest opportunities. We therefore conducted a strategic review following the completion of the eCG acquisition to determine our key priorities, and to assess how we should invest for the highest return.
“The result was our new strategic plan entitled ‘Growing at Scale’:
- Focus on our five core geographic markets
- Concentrate on high-quality verticals
- Become fully transactional in consumer goods
- Leverage technology and transform our advertising business
"By prioritising investment for growth in our five core markets, we can reduce complexity and execute much faster.”

Nexstim Receives an Order for Two NBS Systems from a Finnish University Hospital24.5.2022 11:30:00 CEST | Press release
Press release, Helsinki, 24 May 2022 at 12:30 PM (EEST) Nexstim Receives an Order for Two NBS Systems from a Finnish University Hospital Nexstim Plc (NXTMH:HEX, NXTMS:STO) ("Nexstim" or "Company") has received an order for two NBS 5 systems from a university hospital in Finland. The customer is an experienced user of the Nexstim NBS 4 system, now acquiring the two new systems to replace the old system and to increase capacity. Nexstim’s NBS (Navigated Brain Stimulation) system is used, for example, in planning neurosurgery or radiation therapy after a patient has had a diagnosis of a brain tumor or other disorder. When the lesion is predicted to be close to functional areas of the brain—such as those responsible for speech production and limb movement —the brain maps generated with NBS can be invaluable when deciding the best, personalized treatment option for the patient. These specific NBS systems also include the software of an NBT® (Navigated Brain Therapy) system, allowing the sys
Sweegen Wins Stevia Reb M Patent Lawsuit Against PureCircle24.5.2022 11:04:00 CEST | Press release
Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sweegen, the global pioneer in wellness ingredient technologies and innovations, announced its victory against PureCircle in a stevia Rebaudioside M (Reb M) patent lawsuit. "Today's judgment vindicates Sweegen and affirms the company's position as an industry leader in innovative sweetener solutions," said Steven Chen, CEO of Sweegen. PureCircle, acquired by Ingredion in 2020, had filed the 2018 lawsuit against Sweegen in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, accusing Sweegen of infringing two PureCircle patents covering the manufacture of Reb M. The legal tide turned on PureCircle when Sweegen obtained a summary judgment that both of PureCircle's asserted patents are invalid. Since it is impossible to infringe an invalid patent, the court's invalidation of the asserted patents ends the infringement case against Sweegen at the U.S. District Court. "As a holder of core proprietary technologies of
